I like the PS1 PS2 PS3 and PSP start up boots.

my favorite is by far the PS1 boot, at the time it was so cool. I always got excited with the boot. The PS1 was my real introduction to video games, i played the nes and snes before but no like the PS1 perhaps it has to do with not liking 2D games.

I never like xbox start up. Its green.
Xbox 360 is alittle better but still i dont like it.

Gamecube is pretty good and fun.

Sega had the best one...with the genesis

Genesis didn't have a boot-up screen. The Sega CD and Saturn did tho.

True Genesis didnt have a start up screen, but he is talking about SEGA published games like Sonic which had the Seeeeeggggaaaaa during the game boot up.

I have to agree that was the best boot up.

But I love the PS1, PS3, and PSP.

I hated the PS2 bootup.
